Latest Ski Fashion:Trenchcoats?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Maybe it's just where I live but it seems this year there is a new trend with young riders to wear unbuttoned trenchcoats as ski jackets along with pink shirts and/or pants. Kids are flying around on boards with their coats trailing behind and flapping in the wind. Guys are decked out in pink sweatshirts and hats.

Is this some new punk fashion trend or is it just localized to my small ski world here in Ohio/Western NY resorts?

What you're seeing is among the lamest of all fashion trends to ever sweep America- irony. From pink shirts (OMG I'm wearing pink and I'm not gay or a girl!!! AMIRITE??? AMIRITE????) to trucker hats (OMG Only poor people wear these LOLOLOLOLOLOL AMIRITE???? AMIRITE????) and everything inbetween.


Irony may be fashionable, but it wont keep the rest of us in the know from laughing our asses off at them.

With the weather around here, raincoats will be the new skiing craze.

The unzipped-jacket-flapping-in-the-wind look appeared in freestyle videos two seasons ago. I thought it went away...

Pink ?

Pink is old. The thing is, most of these "stylin' rippers" aren't savvy enough to cycle colours EVERY season.

Just think, the #3 dress shirt in England is Pink.

THink: White, Blue, then.... PINK.

With blue, it's amazing. Just think Tommy H or Polo ads in Rolling stone:
khakis and PINK AND BLUE shirts!

Pastels are awlays in for pasties

My only fashion is usually anti-fashion: I wear the same steeptech coat from 10 years ago.

In a September magazine I read that pink was the new cutting-edge colour for guys this year.

Didn't see any mention of trenchcoats, though. And I haven't seen any at Whistler though there were some funny suits up there recently, as this Coastphoto.com shot reveals...

I remember a snowboarder in one of the Stump movies wearing a trenchcoat in 1990 or so. Maybe these kids are going retro.
